Job Description

Mmhmm is a new company from All Turtles that creates clear, compelling communications via video. Mmhmm helps people create a unique personal video presence and beautifully share content in a variety of contexts, from remote work, to online learning, to virtual events, or even just socializing.

As the first, and for now, only, Counsel for mmhmm, you’ll be defining and implementing the policies for our new streaming video product. You’ll bring product-first legal counsel to all the decisions and policies that we draft and implement. We’re just getting started, and launched our private beta in July, 2020. This means you’ll need to be comfortable with ambiguity and shifting priorities. In fact, you see our fluid and dynamic environment as an opportunity and a welcome challenge. As part of this small team, you’ll draft and improve things like our terms of service, privacy policy, and data policy. You’ll manage various takedown and privacy related requests and compose responses to requests and to users. You’ll also help guide our approach and policies for artists and creators of all kinds. Sitting at the intersection of the product, creators, users, and the law, you’ll guide the team to make sound decisions and articulate the reasoning behind them.

Because this is a small team, you’ll be expected to be both strategic and tactical. You’ll coordinate with the customer support manager to evaluate the severity of situations, and with the CTO to implement and automate responses. You’ll advise your colleagues on risks and consequences to empower them to execute. Since the product just launched, you’ll also need to be flexible and adaptable as usage grows; what we need in six months will not be what we need today.

You’ll be responsible for:

  • Drafting and editing a variety of policies for mmhmm, as well as processes for enforcement of those policies, especially trust and safety policies.
  • Evaluating takedown and other requests or allegations, and drafting responses to them.
  • Protecting the mmhmm brand.
  • Representing the product publicly about enforcement and policy decisions.
  • Advising product, design and engineering teams, and making recommendations that balance against product and other business priorities.
  • Contract drafting and negotiation for various types of agreements, including distribution partnerships.

You must have:

  • A JD from an ABA-accredited law school.
  • Member in good standing of a state bar, preferably California.
  • 5-8 years experience in product, privacy, or policy counsel at a technology company.

Ideally, you’ll also have:

  • A background in user-generated content, multimedia, and/or artist relations.
  • Familiarity with a breadth of legal subject matter, including privacy and data protection (including GDPR and CCPA), IP (especially copyright/fair use) and consumer protection.
  • Experience advising on global product releases involving innovative technology.
  • Experience advising on, and managing, digital rights and distribution.
  • Excellent judgment and the ability to explain and support your judgment calls to your colleagues.
  • Experience liaising with law enforcement agencies.
  • Strong written, verbal, presentation, and public speaking skills.
  • Experience working with a distributed team.

The Counsel position is a full-time, permanent position reporting to the CEO. This role can be based in any location in the US. We offer comprehensive insurance benefits to our employees and their qualifying dependents, in addition to flexible vacation, a 401(k), parental leave, and a suite of optional benefits and perks programs.

All Turtles is committed to creating and fostering a diverse team. We encourage people from underrepresented backgrounds and all walks of life to apply. We’re committed to providing reasonable accommodations to all applicants throughout the application process.
